Apex v. Miller Holiday Invitational

Apex High's Ian Boyd (32) drives to the basket against Miller Schools' Isaac Copeland (11) in the Holiday Invitational.

FINAL Miller 60 Apex 58: The Miller Mavericks held on to a 60-58 win after a furious comeback by the Apex High School Cougars. Trailing by a score of 52-41 early in the 4th quarter, Apex behind the trio of Malik Williams, Ian Boyd and TJ Evans mounted a 12-2 run to claw within 54-53 with 3 minutes remaining in the game. However Miller was able to hang on to the victory by making free throws and causing turnovers. Evans led all scorers with 24 points while Tony Washington led the Mavericks with 18 points. Isaac Copeland had 17 for Miller.

END 3Q Miller 50 Apex 41: TJ Evans has dropped in 20 points today, but the Apex Cougars still find themselves trailing Miller after 3. The length of the Mavericks seems to be too much for Apex as 6-9 wing Isaac Copeland scored 9 in the 3rd quarter to give him 16 on the game. Big man Tony Washington has also got in on the action for Miller chipping in 9 points. Travis Hester has also dropped in 17 for the Mavericks

HALFTIME Miller 34 Apex 27: Miller is doing everything it can to stretch out the lead, but Apex's TJ Evans is having nothing of it, as the junior guard scored the final 11 points for the Cougars to keep them within striking distance. Evans has a total of 13 points all in the 2nd quarter. Travis Hester continues to lead all scorers with 16 points for the Miller Mavericks.

END 1Q Miller 16 Apex 10: Apex behind the hot shooting early from Malik Williams jumped out to a 8-7 lead, but then sharpshooter Travis Hester dropped 3 3-pointers as part of a 9-2 run to give the Mavericks a 6 point first quarter lead. Hester leads all scorers with 12.

Pregame: Apex High School and Miller School will meet in the 5th place game of the Shavlik Randolph bracket of the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational. Both teams will try and finish the tournament with a record of 2-1.


Apex dropped a tough opener to Raleigh Word of God but fought back hard in their second game behind their defense, dismantling Clinton 56-34 in an elimination game. The Cougars found themselves down 11-7 after the 1st quarter but outscored the Dark Horses 49-23 after that to cruise to an easy win, forcing 30 turnovers in the process. The Cougars were led in scoring by TJ Evans with 16 points.


Miller School, after an uninspiring first round loss to High Point Christian, found themselves on the right end of a 75-61 outcome against the Greenfield Knights. Behind 24 points and 13 rebounds from standout Isaac Copeland, the Mavericks were able to cruise to an easy win against the Knights. Copeland has scored a combined 42 points in the Holiday Invitational thus far.
